7th February 2022
Today we used good tar roads all the way from Lake Albert, through the -oil- booming town of Hoima to Entebbe. Back to the Best Western Premier Garden Inn.
The car was returned as efficiently as it had been dropped off.
We spent the rest of our time exploring Entebbe. Sampling Rolexes, and other eating places
To leave Uganda we had to have a Covid PCR test, and had this done at a local clinic. It was Negative so on the 12th February 2022 was were ready to get Qatar Airways fight QR 1384 from Entebbe to Doha. We checked in at 15.30 and left at 18.30 on an Airbus 330 with lie flat seats in business class. In Doha we had a very short connection time to the next flight QR 21 Doha to Manchester - the flight was packed- This was the 777 Q Suites again. I slept all the way home.
Originally I had planned a two centre holiday. Gorillas in Uganda then beach in Kenya or Zanzibar. But the working out what was needed for Covid testing for each country was complicated. Also, the flight schedules had been reduced so I decided to stay in Uganda.
Uganda seemed like a very safe country. The people were welcoming and friendly and we did not encounter any begging or harassment. Self driving was very easy. Good roads, good road signs and lots of petrol stations. It was a great holiday in the sun whilst the UK was still cloaked in winter, expensive, (thanks to UWA) but good!
